City Breaks to Brussels
Discover more about the city that has fast become one of the most popular spots in Europe for short breaks and weekend getaways. The capital of Belgium is easy to get to from the UK thanks to a large number of cheap flights and fast trains running out of London. Short journey times mean a cheap city break in Brussels is simple to organise and you’ll find plenty to keep you occupied during your stay.
No matter whether it is the amazing beers, the thought of Belgian waffles, the divine chocolate shops, or the stunning and diverse architecture that attracts you to the city, it won’t take you long to feel at home in Brussels. If you have a love of fine food and relaxed cafe culture, then a metropolitan city break here should certainly suit you down to the ground.
Try and find time to admire the 17th century buildings of La Grand-Place, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is in the heart of the city. The Atomium, a structure of giant tubes and steel balls built for the 1958 World Exhibition, is one of the most popular attractions in the city and looks particularly impressive at night when illuminated by close to 3,000 lights. Also try and fit in a trip to Bozar during your Brussels city break. It was built as a centre for culture and the arts in 1928 by the architect and designer Victor Horta and is well worth a visit.
As you would expect from a well-established European short city break destination, there is a wide variety of accommodation options available in Brussels to suit all budgets and tastes.
